Baby containers. I did a lot of driving over the weekend in fog, drizzle and rain. And everyplace I went, at least twice a day, I saw babies being pushed around in strollers that were encased in a clear plastic shield. While I’m all for kids on leashes, I’m not sure about the plastic bubble thing. While all of the babies that I saw this weekend were just sitting thee doing their placid baby thing, I can’t help wondering if they’ll grow up with unexplained fear of being walled off in a place they can’t escape from.
Plant containers. (Cabin fever alert, exhibited as talking about gardening.) I have two lovely terra cotta strawberry pots. When I first got them, I actually tried to grow strawberries in them – I got about 4 edible berries over the course of three years. So I moved onto herbs, portulaca and begonias each with their own miserable result. Despite the fact that everything I attempt lately ends up as crap and I was never successful with these pots even back when I was good, I’m thinking about resurrecting the pots and trying it again.
Maybe i’ll try cactus this time.
No. Really I have this vision of filling all the openings with red begonias and placing it on a block right in the flower bed. Or maybe in an assortment of impatiens and putting it at the back end of the bed where tree roots insist on ruining everything.
I tired googling “flowers in strawberry pots” or what to plant in strawberry pots” and I get generic returns that say Don’t limit your strawberry pots to just strawberries! You can plant herbs, annual flowers or succulents!” Obviously, this is advice from people who are paid to produce words and haven’t ever actually tried to grow anything in a strawberry pot.
So I don’t know. I know its the winter blues taking but IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN THAN YOU PLAN TO FAIL and I already have enough fail garden-wise than I can handle.
